It's a huge problem for foxes in my area. In late 2017, when I first started observing my local population, I had a female who was just eaten up with mange. I finally managed to get some medicated food into her, and she not only made it through the winter, but actually had two kits that spring. I sometimes wonder if any of my current crop of foxes are her descendants.
